I am a corporate commercial solicitor. I advise individuals and companies in respect of commercial matters and I work on a wide variety of commercial matters including mergers, acquisitions, disposals and reorganisations. My clients range from entrepreneurs to shareholders of large international organisations. The client sectors I work for are diverse and span the world of finance, technology, property investment, communications and fashion.
Moving to London to start my career as a solicitor. I love working in London, it is a very inspiring place to be and highly motivating.
Living in London is a great place for inspiration, and most of my style inspiration comes from what people are wearing around me. However, I love Olivia Palermo for the way she mixes high street with designer so effortlessly and always looks beautiful; and Victoria Beckham for the way she wears clothes that suit her body type.
I once wore a skirt to the office which I thought had really 'funky' stitching around the hem - I later realised that it was the tacking stitches which should have been cut off - turned out I had been wearing a lovely pleated skirt all along - oops!
Both. Getting the balance right between 'feel good' and 'professional woman' is the key! There is nothing that helps wash away the Sunday night blues more than having a lovely new outfit to wear for work on a Monday morning!
This is very difficult. I would rather work in a mixed team - however if you are making me choose - I would say women. We can relate to one another, we are super organised, great multi-taskers and decision makers, we think laterally, we are emotionally aware of others and we would organise super client events that did not involve football, rugby or cricket!
